August 24, 2021 - Update on the “MANDATORY WATER CONSERVATION NOTICE.”

The Mandatory Water Conservation notice is still in effect due to one of our major water sources being below its normal level and due to that we are continuing the Mandatory Water Conservation notice until late fall.
The South Berwick Water District appreciates your cooperation during this time.

The washing of streets, driveways, parking lots, service station aprons, office buildings, exterior of homes, sidewalks, apartments or other outdoor surfaces.
